I don't know if it's interesting for you, but I use my pocket pc (hp hx4700) for this and I use cheap bluetooth gps receiver connected to ppc. After that it's just a matter of programs running on ppc, and yes voice navigation (or turn-by-turn navigation) works nice. But this is in Europe and I never tried it in USA. To be honest, maps are a bit too expensive to buy them for once a year use :)

I'm using a PDA + GPS receiver combo in the US. It works great. It costs a little more than a standalone GPS but PDA can be used so many different way and I think that was a good option. Also, you can switch software without costing too much (only the cost of software).

I'm on business in Nova Scotia right now, and have been doing a lot of driving. They guy I'm travelling with has a Magellan GPS. This thing is, quite simply, amazing. It ran him around six bills, but I can definitely see the value of it...

I hae a 60cs, it is worth it to spend the money on the updated maps. I considered a pda/gps combo, but the 60cd is waterproof to 1 meter and much more durable then a pda. The barrometer is neat for plotting pressure when hurricanes go by!
